Alaina & Alex | Weirton WV Weddings | 2017

I’ve known Alaina since she was a little girl. She’s now a beautiful young woman who married her soul mate. Alex is perfect and together they are magic! Their wedding took place at Sacred Heart of Mary (Weirton, WV) on a crisp, yet beautifully sunlit day on March 11th. After the ceremony, their elegant reception took place at the St. Florian Hall in Wintersville, OH. Catering by Piergallini’s, Flowers by Fern Landesberg-Myers, music and entertainment by the fabulous Jonathan Mihellis of Finest Events.

Tessa & Carl | Williams Country Club | Weirton, WV

The moment I sat down with Carl and Tessa I knew their wedding day was going to be spectacular. Elegant. We had the opportunity to shoot in a church we had never been in before (which is rare) and what a gem! St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Steubenville, OH is absolutely gorgeous. The wedding was followed by a spectacular reception held at Williams Country Club in Weirton, WV. Despite a little bit of rain, the day was perfect. Carl is all about surprises – and the big one of the day was a horse drawn carriage provided by Carriage Limousine Service.
We were so honored that Carl and Tessa chose us to document their big day!

Gwen & Alex | Weirton, WV | Weddings

Gwen and Alex have a true love story. Mature couples have a very special way about them and the love that surrounds them is contagious! I will always remember their Anniversary as they got married on my “adoption” birthday. Alex is a retired fire-fighter and wore his dress uniform for the wedding. Quite dapper! The ceremony was at the Kings Creek Chapel and the reception at the Chapel’s hall.
